Hamilton will surpass Senna - Mansell

1992 F1 world champion Nigel Mansell believes Britain's Lewis Hamilton will "surpass" Aryton Senna's record of three world drivers titles.

The 30-year-old Mercedes driver's achievements are "outstanding", and Mansell describes Hamilton as the "hot favourite" for next year's drivers title.

Hamilton's victory at the Japanese GP brought him level with his childhood idol on 41 race wins and extended his lead over team-mate Nico Rosberg to 48 points.
